Up To 375$ credit From Shaw to upgrade to 6412 HD-PVR

Just wanted to let people know that Shaw is offering credit on your old cable box to upgrade to the new 2-tuner 6412 HD-PVR. In my case, I returned my DCT-6208 to the Shaw office(Scurfield blvd. in Winnipeg) and was given 375$ credit to purchase the new unit.

I called twice on this before and was told by CSR's that there was no trade-up program but going to the office made all the difference.
I was there to trade in a faulty cable modem and decided to ask again since I was there. The woman nodded and asked her co-worker who had a printed form at her desk with a table of credit values.
Took in the 6208 the next day and had no trouble swapping for the 6412 box even though there were different people working. They didn't even ask where I bought the 6208(FS).
Cost just over 400$ after the credit including taxes.

Update: Posts below this one indicate that this program is being offered in other cities as well(Edmonton, Vancouver etc...)

Ok, it's official. I'm going to try this. I can't recall...anybody get this in Vancouver? Do you repackage it in the box etc, or just bring the unit in?
Ok, I did it on the weekend. The $375 is very official. Phoned and she looked it up, went in and he looked it up. Big improvement over the 6208. The series recording function is great...getting me back a little closer to my beloved Tivo. Everything like channel changes and menu surfing is also much faster. I'm a happy camper, although I would be happier if I hadn't had to buy 2 of these darn things within 6 months to get to where I am now.
I upgraded at the same place last Saturday and they just put the difference on my cc. 400 and some bucks.
